Jason Holder has been Playing Well this Year

Jason Holder has declared that he is not interested in captaining the West Indies in the near future. He doesn’t want to be in the position for the remainder of his playing career. He is the immediate former captain after spending five years as captain of the West Indies test team.

He is currently playing as a regular team member after he was removed as captain at the start of 2021. The 30 year old said that he had changed his mentality regarding the role of a team captain.

Holder sad that he took the role of being captain at an early point in his career and he therefore didn’t fully understand what he was signing up for. He said that the magnitude of the job required a serious level of commitment. Being a leader of a tea can be mentally draining especially when the team is under pressure from fans and the media. Holder said that he is sure that his game will improve because he can now fully concentrate on his performances.

Holder was named captain by former chairman of selectors Clive Lloyd. The West Indies recently lost to India and they will play their next game against England on March 16, 2022.
